This is a relatively old tunnel that the IDF also attacked in Operation "Guardian of the Walls", but since then Hamas has tried to rehabilitate it and in recent times attempts to dig it have been detected.



The Gaza Division has thwarted a Hamas terror tunnel in recent days that approached the underground barrier in the north of the Gaza Strip - this was allowed to be published today (Monday).

The IDF stated that the tunnel left Gaza City, crossed the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip, but not the underground barrier. They also emphasized that this is a relatively old tunnel that the IDF also attacked in Operation "Guardian of the Walls", but since then Hamas has tried to rehabilitate it and in recent times Excavation attempts have been detected.

"The tunnel comes out of Gaza City, and it is tens of meters deep under the tunnel. It crossed a border, but not the new obstacle," said the commander of the Gaza Division who finished his post today, Brigadier General Nimrod Aloni. "This is a tunnel we have been holding for a long time.

We attacked her with the guard of the walls and hurt her.

In recent times we have identified attempts to restore and return to work in this tunnel.

We decided to investigate it and see how the enemy's rehabilitation efforts are going."

Another branching of the tunnel was detected

According to him, in the process of research, another branching of the tunnel was identified.

"The tunnel is no longer usable, we took care of it yesterday."

He further stated: "We did not detect in this operation Hamas's intentions for a raid."

It can no longer be used.

In the depth of the strip, despite the attack and damage, there are still parts dug up.

It is possible to dig from there, but it is a job that takes a lot of time and money."
